This Hopi Holiday Project gifting is from a place of respect and thanks acknowledging the challenges of living on an Indian reservation in remote Northeastern Arizona far from the economic resources of urban America. Hopi people sincerely carry on a tradition with roots going back thousands of years that is of importance to all the world and is dedicated to all peoples with Mother Earth.

2020 Hopi Holiday project will supply learning, sports and arts supplies gifts to Hopi Foster Care children and to the youth of Shungopavi Village–this is a total of more than 450 youth.

YOUR DONATION IS WELCOME to help us buy gifts for the youth

Hopi family food delivery in support of community leaders.This year due to covid we will not be making door to door deliveries to families. However, on November 27, 2020, we made a delivery of food supplies to Hopi families that have been doing community distribution with us for the past 2 decades. (photo by Susan Henderson)

Hopis manage to grow corn in the high desert without irrigation–proof of their faith, endurance and ability to pray. They choose this land many centuries ago.  Please see the vertical box on home page with historic photo of a Hopi traditional farmer for more of our inspiration for our projects.

Please see more about how to get involved here.
